YOUR MAILBOX ACCOUNT HAS BEEN HACKED!


So you notice someone has been doing things in your mailbox! and you are still able to log in to your mail! Its your lucky day!
Because the attacker knows your password and can log in to your account with full privilegies anytime, being in position to change your mailbox account password making you locked out from your own mailbox with the result ACCESS DENIED!!!
You have a TROJAN HORSE installed in your computer that sends everything you write on your computer directly to the attacker.

SOLUTION: Download antivirus, run scan and as soon you are virusfree log in to your mailaccount and change your password.

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

My problem is Xp is locked.but how idont know?


Do you mean you are locked out of your profile/Windows Account? Your password does not work?.

If this is the case, you can keep clicking F8 right after your computer turns on until you get a menu screen on a black background. With the arrow keys on the keyboard select Safe Mode and click enter.

You will get to a more basic (larger) looking Windows screen and there with be an "Administrator" account. If no password was entered for this account, click this account and enter with no passsword. Go to Settings > Control Panel the double Click the icon for User Accounts. Choose your Account and reset/erase or change your password.

Reboot and you should be able to log in with the new password you created or without a password (if you erased it).

You need to log-on as administrator to unlock it. If you're a user yourself, you will not be allowed to unlock it.

I have a laptop inspiron and cannot remove the lock function when i log on


First of all i need to know the specific model of the inspiron laptop in question.
Secondly,is the lock or its better to say password on the motherboard or on the user account.
If its the user account, then you can type the word "Administrator" in the user field if it opens up for u then u can access that account through C:\Documents and Settings/ user account and access the data. After u can even delete that account.
Or I reccommend to use Hillens Boot Cd and use the password tools.
thnx
